Little Child
(Loss Of Child Baby Poems)

Little child, you packed your toys
You no longer wished to play ..
Then all alone .. all by yourself
You gave your life away.

What were you thinking;
what were your thoughts?
What was in your troubled mind? ..
Oh such confusion; no one knew
Why so sad, dear child of mine?

You gave up before you started
Why so eager to depart? ..
Honey, just around the corner
Better things for you, sweetheart.

Could I have helped? You didn’t ask
How could I have been so blind? ..
Such grown up sadness in my baby
If only we’d had had more time.

Surely God was ready for you
That is what I tell myself ..
But, why couldn’t He have warned me,
In some way I might have helped.

For such a short time you were ours
we loved you more each day ..
But, precious child, I’ll always wonder
what made you put your toys away?
